Keeping cool

We've only made it to the beach once, but we've been busy crossing errands off the list.

Since my internet time is so limited, I used my Frugal Hacks spot to chat about what I've been whipping up in my mother-in-law's kitchen.

Did you know a package of 4 ice cream sandwiches costs $7.85 here? I'm thinking it's almost worth it!

On the other hand, it's making this frozen lime dessert seem awfully frugal by comparison.

That desert looks delicious. Hope you are having a good time and have a safe trip home.

Actually, I just paid $6.09 for 6 organic small ice-cream sandwiches at Kroger's, so your island price doesn't sound so bad. Besides, you are on vacation, so relax and eat all the ice-cream you want! Sometimes, price shouldn't be the deciding factor, IMO.

Hey Meredith!

YUM to iced cream sandwiches!! Praying for you with being pregnant and the heat. I had pre-eclampsia with Grace and my swelling and edema were unreal - just make sure to call your doc if you get a headache that persists or any visual disturbances! (I'm always reminding preggos that, don't think I'm a Nosey Nelly, LOL!)

Enjoy yourself and the wedding and have a second ice cream sandwich for me! :o)

Green and white are such crisp cool colors and the food looks very comforting. Glad you are ok . Take care in the heat , relax and celebrate.

YUMMY that looks so good.

I was amazed at the ice cream section in Costco last night - everything has gone up about $2 more an item!

I'll check out your recipe ...

Hope you're having a wonderful time Meredith!

Any lime dessert is a hit with me! That one sure looks good! I just bought limes for limeade, maybe I should rethink that!

Stay cool if you can.
